Vettel running first again for Red Bull at second test

Despite reliability issues with the RB10 in Jerez, Sebastian Vettel will run on the first two days again in Bahrain before handing over to Daniel Ricciardo
Sebastian Vettel will again be driving on the opening two days when testing resumes this week in Bahrain.

At the first test in Jerez, Vettel was scheduled to drive on each of the first two days before handing over to new team-mate Daniel Ricciardo. However, reliability issues with both the RB10 and the new Renault power unit restricted Vettel to just 11 laps of running in total.

Ricciardo didn't fare any better during his two days in the car, completing just 10 laps as Red Bull finished the first test with the lowest lap count of all the teams present in Jerez.

Red Bull has now confirmed that it will be adopting the same driving schedule when the second test gets underway in Bahrain on Wednesday, with Vettel in the car for the first half of the test before handing over to Ricciardo on Friday and Saturday.
